Chelsea Clinton Serves a Vegan Wedding Dinner
At what was, arguably, the highest profile social event of the year, Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky served a vegan meal at their wedding July 31 in Rhinebeck, N.Y. overlooking the Hudson River. A vegan diet which goes a few steps beyond vegetarianism to shun any food derived from meat, including cheese and butter is increasingly popular. The father of the bride, who is no stranger to heart trouble, then made news by discussing the health benefits of a vegetarian or vegan diet. Eating less meat, and more vegetables, is also good for the environment, since veggies take fewer resources to produce.
